Your kitchen is one of the most important rooms in your home and one where you probably spend a significant amount of your time each day. As such, you’ll want it to be an area that you aesthetically enjoy. Here are some of the top kitchen trends for 2017 to help you take this room to the next level:
Contrast Light and Shadow
Mosaics can be an excellent way to play around with contrast in your kitchen. Look for a design that blends elements of both light and dark to create depth and visual interest. This trend looks best as a backsplash around your kitchen or as a stand-out design over your stove. Just be sure that the color family meshes well with the rest of your kitchen decor.
Choose Attention-Grabbing Tile
Eclectic is the name of the game when it comes to creating a unique backsplash for your cooktop. Look for bold tile patterns and designs, and don’t worry about them all matching. Aim for a variety of patterns and styles, but try to stick with a general color palette so that it doesn’t get too crazy.
Focus on the Flooring
Because your kitchen is not usually as “decorated” as other areas of your home, you can have a bit of fun with the flooring. Tile is a perfect option for kitchens because it is durable and easy to clean, helping it to withstand the rigors of daily use and food messes. Look for bold colors and patterns to make an impact that stands out.
Create a Countertop Waterfall
If you love the look of granite or marble and wish that you could have more of it in your kitchen, a countertop waterfall is the way to go. Rather than stopping at the edge of your kitchen counter or island, a waterfall lets the stone continue down over the side to the floor. By using just one piece of stone, the natural pattern is maintained, creating a waterfall effect over the edge of your counter.
Mixing Metal Finishes
Gone are the days when everything in your kitchen needs to be matchy-matchy. Instead, try switching up the metal finishes on various aspects of your kitchen. For example, try brushed nickel faucets with bronze cabinet hardware. You could even throw in a gorgeous copper teapot for some added flair.
